Linear Programming Problem Solver

Andrew Wichmann

Operations Research is a field in mathematics that uses mathematical modeling and algorithms to arrive at optimal or near-optimal solutions for complex problems. These problems in real life usually consist of hundreds and even thousands of variables and would be very time consuming and impossible to complete in a timely manner. Thus it is necessary to have programs with the ability to solve these problems so that the solution will not be obsolete by the time it is found. This program seeks to take an already formulated problem and read it into the program and then parse and translate the problem into a suitable format for the computer to use. Then the program will use this file to solve the problem and will be able to print out the solution, and if the user chooses, the steps used to solve the problem.
